Bolsheviks were a faction of Marxist Russian Social Democratic Labor Party. They came to power as a result of October revolution in 1917. Vladimir Lenin and Alexander Bogdanov were the founders of Bolshevik faction. However, Bogdanov was expelled from the party in 1909 over differences with Lenin.
The Bolshevik Party took power after the October Revolution in 1917. After the February Revolution, power was vested in the Provisional Government with no particular political party in sole power.
Vladimir Lenin was the leader of the Bolsheviks during the "soviet revolution", although technically it is not called the soviet revolution, but the Russian Revolution or Bolshevik Revolution. The Soviet Union had not come into being until 1922.
Vladimir Lenin and Leon Trotsky masterminded the October Revolution.
Lenin seized power in 1917 in Russia.Lenin took power in Russia on October 25, 1917, according to the Russian Julian calendar at the time. It was November 7 elsewhere in most of the world. This was the date Lenin and his Bolshevik Party engineered the October Revolution when he overthrew the Provisional Government and took full control of the government as head of the Bolshevik Party.
Although communism does not believe in 1 leader and all desisions are to be group desisions there were different leading figures. When the provisional government were overthrown by the Bolshevik party Vladimir Lenin was the real leader of the party. However when Lenin died in 1924 the battle to be the leading figure within the Bolshevik party also known as the power struggle ended out with Joseph Stalin the General Secetary to be the leading figure however realistically he was a dictator.
Vladimir Lenin's closest associates advised Lenin that to overthrow the Kerensky Provisional government would be a terrible mistake. Zinov'ev and Kamenev were alarmed that a Bolshevik seizure of power might be an initial success, but that they would be unable to keep their power over Russia. This failure would forever damage the Bolshevik cause and take years to reverse. They felt so strongly about this that they openly violated Party discipline by publishing article in non-Bolshevik papers.
It was split by Bolshevik party (run by Lenin), and the Duma (Alexandar-Provisional Government). ^_^
